The Electability of Herman Cain

By Bill Knowles – from We Are Politics

Editor’s note:  This is a copy of a column that will be released in The 11th Hour Magazine on Thursday.

As most of you have heard by now, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain is now in the top tier of candidates running for the Republican nomination for President.  It comes of no surprise to me, but it may shock many of you out there that in the most recent CBS poll just released, Herman has pulled into a tie for the lead with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and has leap-frogged over flash-in-the-pan and former frontrunner Texas Governor Rick Perry.  The question most people have as well as the political pundits out there is now is Herman Cain an electable candidate who could run against the Obama juggernaut.  I answer most assuredly that he can and here are my reasons, not in any particular order.


1.  Herman Cain is popular in the South.  There’s no question that just about any candidate from the GOP will carry most of the South…but Florida, Virginia and North Carolina are pivotal states.  A Southerner on the ticket might solidify victories there as all three states were narrowly won by President Obama in 2008.  If the GOP is to take back the White House, these three states are key.

2.  Herman has practical experience.  It’s true that Herman has very little political experience, but Dwight Eisenhower didn’t either.  Cain’s experience in the business world is unmatched by any candidate that has ever run for the presidency and practical knowledge is what is despirately needed to turn this country around right now, not lifetime politicians who are only looking to do what is politically right.
